Using the Libraries

From Other Libraries

CSU+ is a free interlibrary loan service students, faculty and staff may use to borrow books that are checked out or not available at the CSUEB Libraries. Books may be requested from any of the 22 other campuses of the California State University. Books are usually delivered within 2-4 days.

Using CSU+

Library Catalog
You first need to login to the library catalog with your NetID and password to use CSU+. If a book or media item you’re searching for is not available at the CSUEB Library, but is available at other CSU libraries a link to “Request from CSU Libraries CSU+” will appear under "In the Library."

What Can Be Requested
Books and other print material, as well as media may be be requested. Digital scans of book chapters are also available and will be delivered via email within 24 hours. Each CSU library may limit the specific items they lend, so in some cases the library catalog may allow CSU+ requests for items the owning library does not lend. If that occurs, please request the item through Interlibrary Loan.

Most physical items are delivered in 2-4 days. You'll be notified when the item has arrived and is ready to be picked up at the Check Out Desk on the First Floor, Library CORE. CSU+ books will be on the hold shelf for 10 days after delivery, after which they will be returned to the owning library if not picked up.

Loan Period
16 week loan period for most books, 30 day loan period for media and special case items. No renewals. $90 lost book fee.
